Ok, I have a 98 SS and it kinda sits higher in the back then it does in the front. The front sits right above the 16' Stock wheels that I have, But the back looks to be about 2' or 3' off the wheel. I have a set of drop leaves and I was wondering if I could just install those without installing the coils and spindles up front too? Let me know please! :confused:

The SS already has a 1.5" dropped rear leaf settup, so a set of 3" leafs will only drop it an additional 1.5" if this isnt enough, you could use a 2" or 3" block with your stock leafs instead.

I have a 99 Sonoma with the ZQ-8 package which should be the same as your 98SS. I put the 3" Belltech leafs on the back which effectively gave me an additional 1.5 inch lower and used Belltech 2" springs in the front that gave me an additional 1" there. The truck sets almost perfectly level. The front is a tad bit lower (less than 1/2 ")

Spindles are better upfront for handling reasons, but coils will drop you the same.

Yep if u have 3'' springs all around then expect your truck to 1.5 inches lower than now.
